I still find myself juggling brews with four carboys. Especially if I have one or two in the secondary.

I'm at the point where I will start using kegs to secondary or lager so that my carboys are free when I need them.

We have 2 FV's as well. And a 3rd bucket that is for bottling,secondary,or a 3rd fermenter. We started doing 11G at a time,getting 4.75 cases between the two.

That's exactly correct, Crown isn't really much of a whiskey. Canadians thinking they can make whiskey. Such a silly idea. Leave it to the hillbillies in Kentucky, they know what they're doing.

You got that right! I remember when pop used to come over on my birthday,bringing me a bottle of Beam's Choice! We both loved it,so I'd break out some cold beers,fry up some fresh caught bass & fries,& we'd all have a good time. Good memories with good ol' Kentucky bourbon!
I just took it to the next level after making a few mistakes along the way with this HB'ing adventure. I found,much to my dismay,that Beam's Choice isn't available anymore. That I could find,anyway. What I did find was Beam's Black 8 year old "double aged" Kentucky bourbon!
So,I soaked 5 jiggers in 4oz of medium toast French oak chips while I fermented a dark ale can with amber DME,& Kent Golding & Haulertau hops. They're both in secondary now,1 week in tomorrow. Man! What wonderful flavors! Holy Lord! The smooth dark ale mix made a combo of red ale/whiskey sort of color. But the other flavor component is a vanilla cream/bourbon goodness from that & the bourbon soaked oak. A few more days,& I'll sample it again to check for the highest quality.
And at close to 5.9%ABV,it's damn sure gunna be quality!

This is the whiskey lover's equivalent to someone saying they are a true beer aficionado because they drink Guinness and Stella.

I still drink many entire batches before they are at their peak.

Now i know i'm seeing things. I most certainly did not type Tennessee. As far as i'm concerned, Tennessee's most popular "whiskey" is no better than Crown.

The JD from Tenn is the same as bourbon from Kentucky,save for an extra step in the process. Bourbon is smoother,where JD has a sharper bite to it. It's all a matter of preference at the moment...same stuff,different state. Try my Whiskely Ale in a couple of months,& tell me Tenn is better...

Jesus... no it's not. Not even close. He never called himself a true whiskey aficionado or even implied it. Quite the opposite, actually.
